Zack Love (ZackLove) | 2 comments Hi Everyone,

I thought you might want to know about my 99-cent sale of "Sex in the
Title" -- just in case you needed a good laugh today (or are stocking
up on laughs for a future rainy day). In fact, the novel has been
objectively certified as one of the funniest things ever written. To
see what all of the hype is about, check out this gushing but
extremely unbiased review (written by me):

Paul Douglas Lovell (PowerpuffGeezer) | 6 comments PAULYANNA INTERNATIONAL RENT-BOY

Discover what goes on behind the glassy eyed smile of a male street worker. A stereotypical cliché? Perhaps.

I attempt to knock away any preconceptions about damaged goods using plain spoken truth. No added glam or grit, this is my unapologetic story. A social history report. (of sorts).

I hope some of you will take a look and add it to your TO-READ list.

Regards PDL

Marta Tandori (Marta_Tandori) | 3 comments Hi Everyone - I'm a Goodreads author as well as a self-proclaimed book junkie. I write a weekly blog on my website where I talk about books and authors and anything book related that I think may be interesting to like-minded readers.

This week's topic is Fictional Detectives: the World's Most Famous Girl Detective. Last week, it was Fifty Shades of Naughty: the Explosion of Erotica. I hope you have the chance to stop by and check it out. The link is here:

Robert Italia (Robert-Italia) | 8 comments Cristofori's Dream

Jon Lomberg, Chief Artist for Carl Sagan's Emmy Award-winning Cosmos TV special (Jon won an Emmy for Outstanding Individual Achievement on this series), has given me a flattering "review" of my novel, CRISTOFORI'S DREAM. I asked Jon -- a fierce skeptic in his own right -- to critique the science in the story, and feared he would send the guys in the white coats to my front door. He did not. You can find the whole story here:!endors...

Jon's famous painting "Infinite Regression," featured in Sagan's blockbuster book COSMOS, is also featured on my website:!inspir...

The painting illustrates one of the more amazing scientific theories from COSMOS presented in MY book (and you thought it was just a Christmas story!). For the scientifically-squeamish, no worries. You don't have to know science to do science (we all do). After all, what is science but the thoughts and dreams of God, and how He "does it"? This is a major theme/debate of the book.

Special thanks to Jon for his kind words and for his valuable time. Check out his website, send him an email (and tell him that I sent you):

Robert Raker (robert_raker) | 60 comments I am proud to say that my novel "Entropy" is now available on several formats.

When a series of child abductions and murders disrupt the life of an economically blighted community, the consequences have far-reaching implications.

The brutal crimes take a different toll on a disparate group of individuals; the scuba diver who retrieves the children’s bodies; the disfigured cellist who thinks he knows who’s responsible; the undercover federal agent; and the mother of one of the victim’s.

United in a situation not of their choosing, they are forced to take a deep, introspective look into their intersected, yet isolated lives.



I hope everyone enjoys the read.

Tisha Starr | 3 comments Hello everyone, I'm Tisha Starr, one vastly opinionated woman. I stumbled into authorship when HIV touched the life of one of my dearest friends. Immediately I wanted to use my love of writing to help a cause that haunts our community and it 100% preventable.

Talk about a tear jerker, I've been told my novel had it's moments when tissue grabbing was inevitable.

Watch the book trailer, check out my site and feel free to take the book, The Fear of Knowing on a ride of your life.

Steve Valiquette (purplemoonpublishing) Soul Journaling - Lessons from the Past

Please check out this debut book from Karen Valiquette called: Soul Journaling - Lessons from the Past

Karen’s life was changing and she seemed helpless to stop it. Her husband of almost 30 years, her soulmate, was responding to the manipulations of a younger woman.

She was afraid that if she made him make a choice, she might not win. But that was not the case. Their love prevailed and the very event that should have surely shaken their marriage ended up giving them an incredible gift. The answers they sought to heal themselves came from an unlikely place – a past life that they were together in. Karen shares her journey to a life in the 1500s in France that seems to hold the answers to so many questions. Questions they didn’t even know to ask. The story of the past life itself is riveting, but it’s only part of the message. After reading, you will surely begin to look at your own life in a different way. Remember, we are all connected.

This is Karen’s first book and is published in Kindle, Paperback and Large Print Editions.

Robert Raker (robert_raker) | 60 comments Hello. I am an author with a book now available:

ENTROPY by Robert Raker| Pub Date: 29th November, 2013
I recently received my first review:

"Entropy was a complete surprise. It's definitely not your typical, crime book experience. The story is told from the perspective of four individuals in a small and depressed town in America; each story describes how they are affected by the child murders and how this affects their personal relationships. I don't want to give away the ending for those that haven't read the book as yet but I found the overall experience numbing ... it left me in a state of melancholy. If this was the intention of the author - then, he achieved his goal. The diver is unfeigned; the musician surprising; the agent calculating and the portrayal of the mother's story heartfelt. The writing is dense and very sad.

If you are looking for something a little different, enjoy the drama in crime-related books, and/or books that examine relationships then Entropy's sad story may appeal. Although I haven't read anything by this author before, I will be on the lookout for his next book as I understand that a companion piece is in the making..."

Brooke Powley | 1 comments Hi Everyone :) My first novel "The Missing Half" went live two days ago. Here is the description:

“When I was a little girl and children went missing it was just one of those sad things. It never happened to anyone I knew ... It happened over breakfast, or lunch. It happened to parents who were careless”

Alice Winters is not a careless mother. Yet one awful day her two-year-old daughter is taken from her pushchair outside a village shop. Alice’s life becomes every parent’s worst nightmare as she begins questioning everything and everyone she knows, vowing to leave no stone unturned until Grace is found.

Now, ten years later, Alice believes that the publication of her book recollecting the events surrounding Grace’s disappearance will be the final needle in the haystack needed to bring her home.

Who had taken Grace and why? Will Alice ever be ready to accept the truth, no matter how difficult it is to hear?

If your interested in buying, it's available here:

Happy Reading!

Irma Fritz I recently visited a readers' group in the Seattle area, who had read and wished to discuss my first novel, Irretrievably Broken. I hope they will read my most recent book, Confessions of a Predatory Lender and invite me back for another talk. Not only did I spend a wonderful afternoon with them, somehow there followed an inspiration for a new novel, a work in the magical realism genre.

New Release: Times of Turmoil: Christian Thriller

In this prequel to Times of Trouble and Times of Trial, we follow how the Evans family gained their riches and eventually their power to influence events in the United States. We see important events that the Evans family gets themselves involved in: such as the return of the Israelites to Israel, the assassination of President Kennedy, the terrorism of 9/11, and eventually events that lead to gun control and other types of government tyranny in the United States.

The novel also follows the Atwood family, starting with the Great-Grandfather of Brian, Charles, as he fights in World War Two and ends up helping liberate Buchenwald shortly near the end of the war. Charles returns to the States and gets married to the love of his life, Betty. Eventually, the family ends up in Delaney, Nebraska, where we watch Aaron, the father of Brian, join the Army to fight the Taliban in Afghanistan after 9/11. Later on, we get to see how Brian and Lynda finally get together and get married.

Lisa Gordon (lisalazuli) | 2 comments Hi there, My novel A SEALED FATE will be available for FREE on amazon on 23 March.

Set in exotic Dubai is a terrific Easter Break read guaranteed to transport you to another world.

Link to buy:

The book is a unique blend of contemporary fiction and thriller in an unusual setting and with an unusual theme at the centre - the concept of sacrificial and compensatory karma.

The author revs up the tension with her main character, the singer and wannabe rock star, Valda, who speeds through life in a sequence of emotional car crashes until she washes up on Dubai's shores at the feet of the mysterious Sheikh, who, whilst pretending to be her patron, has his own needs to satisfy. And boy does Valda satisfy them until she realises, when in very deep, that she has predecessors with the same experience. The only problem is she can't consult them because they are all dead - in suspicious circumstances. Her clandestine relationship with the Sheikh, propels her further into a murky web of deceit, and she turns to Larissa for help. As an astrologer, Larissa predicts that Valda and the Sheikh's destinies were sealed from the moment of their first meeting; however she keeps the dire fate that she reads in the charts a secret. Together, Valda and Larissa take a gamble in a game of cosmic Russian Roulette where the stakes are their lives and their adversary, Fate itself.

Can they beat Fate? Can freewill triumph?

Take a leisurely tours of the City State's night spots and its haute cuisine; rub shoulders with the beautiful and rich, but never forget that nagging question of destiny and the price you have to pay to change it.
